It is a pleasant surprise to discover this cafe and bakery. It was a nice day at Cary and this cafe provides outdoor sitting (limited). Their food can be hit or miss. Some of their bake goods might be a bit old or tasteless. Their...More

Great place to hang out with friends. The food is delicious. My favorite sandwich is their Chipotle Chicken Panini. I've only visited this place once. I didn't realize they had a branch in Raleigh until I started working around that area several years ago

Better lunch options than Panera, but could hardly carry on a conversation. Prices are better also. With soup and half sandwich you get a descent bowl of soup. Guess you have to make sacrifices, but it would be easy for them to improve the acoustics.

No greeting by the staff. When asking what a product was the guy working there seemed annoyed to answer. Pastries seemed old. Cookies were hard. Very limited selection of desserts and pastries for lunch time. We won't return.

We have ordered lunch for work numerous times, each time the order is accurate and the food is fresh. Salads are great, good portion, good combinations. Everything tastes fresh and made to order. Would highly recommend.

I stop by here occasionally for the tasty muffins. Easy and fast. When we have eaten breakfast and lunch here in the past, all was good.

Chicken salad and quiche are good. Definitely a quick lunch spot much like Panera. Service is quick. Typical soup or salad plus sandwich for less than ten dollars. Lots of kids and noise, but great for a quick work lunch.

Fresh paninis, good flatbreads. Clean location. Good for eat-in or take-out. Prices are a little high but they have daily specials for $7.49.

I had previously eaten at the Cameron Village location but this was my first visit at this location. The service was quick and friendly. I had the Club and it was very good. My mother had the flatbread and it was very good as well....More
